Steam of Life
by Joonas Berghäll, Mika Hotakainen.
81min,  2010, Finland.

Steam of Life reveals that men are most likely to expose their innermost emotions, not when they’re drunk at a bar, but when they’re naked in a sauna. Finnish men make uncensored and unguarded revelations about love, death, heartbreak and life as if the steam and conversation will cleanse their souls.

In all its simplicity the camera records the raw and rare beauty of landscapes, saunas and men in almost magical pictures. Their revealing confessions argue that when we are at our most natural and vulnerable, we are also at our most human.
